scream tests

these screen tests are all soooo amazing. andy films them from such great angles. i love the way his films are just about everyday things, but thats what makes them so inividual. the screen tests really bring out the lighting, especially in black and white. the lou reed one especially captures my attention.

something, or nothing?

pain without rain

i only know of one other living human being who feels most happy while it is raining.
i find the sun puts me very much down. it doesnt make me feel happy at all. which is annoying when you live in a city that hardly ever sees rain for most of the year.
its good here, nice and rainy, and cloudy. the sun makes my skin hurt. at least, i hate it when its sunny and not hot. if its sunny, shouldnt it be hot? most confusing! the other person i know who hates the hot and loves the rain, is a very very close friend of mine. its good because we can both talk about how much we hate the sun until death do us part.
so lou reed, in answer to your question- who loves the sun?
definitely not i.
i dont care how many people like it, i fucking hate it.

so many ways to say one thing, its hard to know what way to say it...
theres only a few important people i say this to. possibly because its a very important thing to say.

look out kid

bob dylan, you are amazing.
so very relevant to my life at the moment.
although, i have to addmit, im not as homesick now. its lovely here.
i just love bob dylan. probably comes from litening to him so much as a child.
my father is a mega mega fan..
just before i left, i was going through my fathers CD collection.
it was so strange seeing all these childhood memories.
i remembed time and time again picking up this CD because it had ducks on it.
i loved it. i also found some rolling stone albums that when i put on i went back to when i was little sitting on the floor.
amazing the way things do that. go back to your childhood. so many fond memories. so many horrid ones.

new friends=new things

i made a new friend. hes somewhat older than me. and a teacher at the school im going to here.
hes such a darling. is funny how generations meet like that.
we like the same music, even though he is so much older than me. i show him pictures of my family, and he shows me pictures of his.
when different generations meet you learn so many new things you wouldn't otherwise!
amazing. i think we will be friends forever.
look at his photography skills. i dare say he has some embarrassing photos of me..
